When I found this Indonesian star fish, I could only think of it as being covered with Hershey chocolate kisses. Sure, the colors are different, but some of those "horns" are just the right size and shape of a kiss. The seastar almost looks a little scarey until you think of all that candy. My research found that in addition to be called the “Horned Starfish”, another common name for it is "Chocolate Chip Seastar". So other people thought of Hershey Kisses too.
